Dr Oz: Ultimate Swimsuit Slimdown

It’s time for bathing suit season…again! But this time, you’ll be ready! With Doctor Oz’s Ultimate Swimsuit Slimdown, you’ll look and feel like a million bucks in any bathing suit, regardless of problem areas.  Dr Oz shared a Swimsuit Slimdown Drink and Salad Recipe, plus a cellulite lotion called Aminophylline Cream.

Dr Oz Swimsuit Slimdown

Dr Oz’s Swimsuit Slimdown Show gave a slimdown drink recipe to have your body swimsuit ready in no time!

On today’s show, Dr Oz had brave women come to the show wearing nothing but their bathing suits. From size 6-26, the women came prepared. (Could you have done something like this?) These women came to the show to face their worst fears ever—swimsuit season.

Dr Oz asked the entire audience who struggled with this request and almost every woman raised their hand. Kimberly, one audience member, said she was nervous and scared. (But kudos for still doing it!) Kimberly told Dr Oz that she has 4 kids and was done having babies, so she was ready to slim it down and get it ready for the beach!

Another audience member tried to “own” the way she looked, but she felt self-conscious about her appearance. She told Dr Oz she came in her bathing suit to try to feel more confident about herself. Another audience member, (51-years old) put on some weight and wanted to get rid of her belly. She wanted to rock a bikini body again.

When Dr Oz asked the audience what they were trying to achieve, some women responded that they just wanted to look good in their swimsuits, but most audience members agreed that they just wanted more confidence.

Dr Oz says you can either terrorize yourself or you can crank up your confidence with smart and simple things to do to get fit. He urges you to change how you feel, too. “It’s all about the confidence,” he told the audience.

Dr Oz: Secret Swimsuit Slimdown Drink Recipe

On audience member said she was looking to improve her appearance and feel better about herself. She also wanted to boost her energy to get motivated to work out. Dr Oz says you can do this by sipping smart.

Combine 1 C grapefruit juice, 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, and 1 tsp honey. Drink this combination before every meal. Apple cider vinegar helps you burn and break down fat. This drink combination also burns away your fat, literally. Drink it 3 x per day before meals.

Dr Oz: Swimsuit Slimdown Salad Recipe

Mercedes, an audience member, told Dr Oz that the hardest part about coming to the show in a swimsuit was that it was “nerve-racking”. She preferred to cover herself up but decided this was something she should do. (I guarantee she was not alone!) Dr Oz says to try his slimdown salad to get to your bikini body.

Mix 1 bunch of dandelion greens (washed, dried and torn into bite-sized pieces), 1 C watermelon (cubed) and parsley. The dandelion greens contain proteins to satiate you. The watermelon has amino acid to help break down fat and sugar and to promote lean muscle. Eat this salad in the middle of the day.

For the salad dressing, combine 2 tsp olive oil, ½ tsp lemon juice and salt and pepper (to taste.)

Dr Oz: Aminophylline Cream for Cellulite

Emily, an audience member, said that on a scale of 1-10, she’s a 5. She battled cellulite in her mid-section and thighs, which she tried to cover up with long shorts. Dr Oz says most women have cellulite regardless of size. To help shrivel down the fat cells to reduce the dimpling appearance, Dr Oz suggested Aminophylline cream. Use this cream 2 x per day for a temporary fix.

Dr Oz: Swimsuit Sculpt

Let’s face it, if you want to get that tight bikini body, you’re going to have to get off the couch some time. Dr Oz used the front row to show you his swimsuit sculpting workout. This workout should be the first thing you do after waking up. (After going to the bathroom, of course!)

Grab a beach towel
Get down into plank position (if too difficult, go onto your knees)
Hold position for 30 seconds (work your way up to 1 minute)

Dr Oz suggested ramping up your self-confidence instead of ramping up your self-loathing. Instead of trying to look like a supermodel, practice these daily techniques to be the best person you can be. (Besides, supermodels are airbrushed anyway! They have just as much cellulite as we do!)

Comments to Dr Oz: Swimsuit Slimdown Drink & Salad Recipe | Aminophylline Cream

  1. I will be trying the Grapefruit drink and see how it works. Love Dr Oz.

  2. I would love to try the Dr. Oz: Swimsuit Slimdown Salad Recipe, but I’m from a rural community that doesn’t have a whole foods store. Where can I find dandelion greens? Love Dr. Oz!!!

  3. Dr Oz, Where can I find Dandelion Greens. Could I find them at trader Joe’s. I do not have a Whole Food Store in the area.

  4. If you can’t find dandelion greens at your local grocer, why don’t you ask your grocer to carry dandelion greens? :)

  5. Can the grapefruit juice be substituted for some other citrus juice

  6. Due to medication I cant drink grapefruit juice. Could you use any other juice and it still be effective?

  7. Becky Bauer says:

    I take blood pressure and thyroid medication. Is the grapefruit slim down drink o.k. to have with this medication?

  8. I can not have grapefruit because of my Zoloft, is there anything else I can use in its place that will give same benefits as the grapefruit juice?

  9. I have the same question as MaryLou. I’m on a statin for my high cholesterol and can’t take grapefruit. I HAVE loved the other Dr. Oz drink with green tea, tangerine and fresh mint but I’m getting bored with it…

  10. I have the same question as Heidi and MaryLou. Is there a substitute for grapefruit

  11. I tried the drink today (And loved it!). My question is… are you supposed to drink that much before every meal, or do you mix that and drink that one mixture over the course of the day. If you make it for each meal, that’s a LOT of grapefruit juice! It took me 2 grapefruits to get to 1 cup. That’s like eating 6 grapefruits a day, which would add a lot of extra calories and sugar to the diet. Thanks…

  12. If I follow the 3 times a day drink, how long before i “see” results?

  13. Can you use canned or bottled grapefruit juice? Can I just eat the grapefruit with the vinegar and honey on it?

  14. Maria Elia Flores says:

    Is it fresh grapefruit or bottles? common sense tells me fresh but need to be sure

  15. Do you drink that amount 3x or 1/3 of that at each meal?

  16. I just want to correct one little tiny error, it is actually 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and not teaspoons

  17. I’m interested in the answer to the question concerning drinking grapefruit juice while taking statin drug as I was told not to combine the two. Eager to get your response as I really want to give this a try…..I need to lose 30 lbs. Thanks

  18. alexandria says:

    Dana- I buy the floridas natural grapefruit juice..its only 90 calories compared to the simply fruit brand or ocean spray. It will last you 4 days so you don’t have to squeeze fresh grapefruits :) I just started the diet..thursday will be my 2nd week.

  19. How long till I see results with the grape fruit drink recipie?

  20. OMG, the drink is disgusting. I figured that since I liked all 3 ingredients, I could make it work, but I got about 3 sips in before I had to dump the rest of the glass. And someone saying it should be 2T of vinegar rather than 2tsp would make it even worse.

  21. Does anyone have any results from doing this? I want to continue this diet, but the taste is NOT all that great lol, and if its not going to show results, I dont wnt to continue to force myself to drink it :) Thanks!

  22. Has anyone had any success with this?

  23. Can I substitute the grapefuit juice with something ealse? I am alergic to citrus. Thanks.

  24. I would try water or any other drink that is considered “healthy!”

  25. Dr. Oz didn’t say but I would try fresh!

  26. Dr. Oz didn’t say but I would try fresh grapefruit. I don’t see why you couldn’t just eat the grapefruit too! Good luck.

  27. Dr. Oz didn’t say, so I would check with your doctor!

  28. Dr Oz didn’t give any substitutions, but maybe you could just try water?

  29. Janet Landers says:

    The recipe I got said you could use grapefruit, orange juice, or pineapple juice. It says to use 2 tsp of the vinegar and 2 tsp of the honey. Bet it’s better with the other juices!

  30. i used orange juice and 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar….its not great but i get it down so far ive notice alot more bowel movements…..

  31. I’m surprised Dr Oz would recommend this because the juice is so high in carbs! 3x a day would equal nearly 80 gms carbs!
    Also 17 gms of carbs in – tsp of honey x3 = 51 gms for a whooping total of 141 gms carbs a day!
    (Sorry, I’m a diabetic on insulin and count those carbs!)
